Another Release is Coming!

Well now, another Belles 'n Whistles release is soon to be upon us and mmm, mmm...the next set of stamps are really quite delicious! ;D In today's short posting, I'd like to get your ideas. If you were releasing a new set of stamps, how would you? Would you do a blog hop or a puzzle, or would you just say, "Bam! Here they are!" LOL! Gimme your ideas...one of you will win a stamp from the upcoming release--you'll get to choose your image when they are "here", LOL!

So put on your thinking caps! Hmmmmm.....

Summer =)

  1. Blog hop is great! or maybe even a stamp a day release, and you can feature some of your DT cards that goes with the stamp I like when you ask a question which is somewhat related to the stamp and then do the daily give-a-way for that stamp I think it's excited and I love to read all the stories!

  2. I guess I'm too impatient - I'd just say BAM - here are the adorable NEW stamps!!!

  3. How about combining the two on the day it is revealed your design team all show a picture of the card made with the stamp.

    I loved WOJ when they did a design team blog hop call as other people rather than just the normal design team got to play and join in and also it picked up their followers too to play.

    The letter per blog on the hop on the high hops to spell a word was good fun or a word which forms a sentence that is open ended as a competition eg

    i love belles n whistles new stamp release because... and the entrance has to finish the sentence to win a set of stamps.

  4. I would like to see build a project, each DT member choses one element for the project. i.e there are seven designers so there would be seven elements to either a card or altered project etc. 2 papers, colours, embossing, flower, charm, sentiment etc, it would be like a blog hop only there would be an end product to enter as part of the prize. Hope I'm making sense.
    Anyway I'm excited about the new images coming.

  5. I would love a blog hop to "earn" the new stamp. Maybe one stamp and a card or something to show off the stamp on each of the DT-members blog. So one different stamp on each blog, and then the visitors can answer a question or do something on each of the DT-blogs, and then there's a draw in the end to win that special stamp. If the visitor visits all the DT-blogs and join all the blog candies then there's a possibility to win all the stamps :)
    I'm looking forward to the next release and will join in any way you decide to do it, Summer.

  6. Patience is not one of my virtues so I'm wanting to see them ASAP! But maybe a couple of cards made with each stamp in the run up to the release .. .. just to tease us a little bit! I have to wait longer for them to arrive in my UK stamp shop too - and I'm only just colouring the first ones!

  7. Ooh I'd love a blog hop. I like getting ideas but the puzzle and question was a lot of fun too. Thanks Summer. I'm so excited to see these new Bells and Whistles.

  8. My idea in my head was the same as Kristin's! I guess I'll think of something else! hehe

    What about just announcing the new release ahead of time and and then on that actual day, we get to see some creations with ALL the new stamps!

  12. I'm not fond of blog-hop nor puzzles. I like seeing the picture straight away, and *ta-ta* here it is! :D

  13. Do a "Week of Sneaks" where all the DTs shows off their cards with the new stamps, leading up to the day of the release. On release day, have a drawing hours leading up to the release time. And pull out one winner at the onset of the release to win a whole set!

  14. I would like a daily draw of the one stamp a day and DT cards to give inspiration for each of the stamps. And maybe on each day for your entry to count to make a suggestion for new future stamps then you'll know what everybody is wanting to see in the future.
    Looking forward to the launch.
    Happy crafting

  15. I like to see sneak peeks on the run up to the release and then maybe a blog hop on the day of the full release to see how the DT used them. And if there's a chance of winning some stamps at the end, all the better!

  16. I would Have my DT make a card with only pieces of the stamp in them hard right ,That would keep everyone guessing ,or Like If the stamp is a girl with pizza Only stamp the pizza .I dont know if that would be to hard .But worth the try .Sarah

  18. I totally love blog hops with the last location being the BAM! It is wonderful to see all the ideas.

  19. Blog hops are o.k. if you don't have 25 blogs to get through. It's just too much at once. A smaller hop for inspiration is great.

  20. I like the idea of a little tease, but I wouldn't want it to drag out for too long. 3 "sneak peek" days would be perfect. For the release one member of the DT and one Belle's n Whistles fan should be assigned to each of the new stamps.

    Sneak peek day #1: a piece of DP that you think captures the "spirit" of the stamp.

    Sneak peek day #2: an embellishment that you think captures the "spirit" of the stamp

    Sneak peek day #3: BAM. You get to see the finished cards using the DP and embellishments shown on the previous sneak peek days. For each new stamp, we'd get to see 2 cards, one from a DT member, one from the fan. That's a lot of inspiration and it would be neat to see the different takes on the same stamp.

    Ooohhing and awwwing and shopping to commence immediately afterwards. Hee hee. ;)

  21. I love blog hops (as long as there aren't TOO many stops!).

  22. Well it is wonderful to have a blog hop because you get to see all the different styles but if you really wanted it to last a little longer (bring in more views) then maybe a release a day. OR have a party (virtual) one evening and release some photos/images/projects a little bit at a time.

  23. I LOVE blog hops! I really enjoy seeing what people create with the stamps. I think it shows them off so nicely and often I find I love ones when used that didn't grab me as much just seeing the image. Blog hop -please!!! :)

  24. Hi Summer,
    I think the best way to introduce a new line of stamps is to put on a blog hop! I'm so curious and can't wait to see the new stamps!!!!

  25. I think it would be a good idea to preview a card made with a new stamp once per day, so everyday, preview a different stamp on the blog.

  26. my vote goes with the blog hop, they are so much fun and its very inspirational to see the stamps being used.
    I know I have bought more stamps as the result of a blog hop, than if I had just seen the stamps
